Q: Can a person take Sizodon plus per day lifelong

My father has been taking Sizodon Plus for past one year. He suffers from depression and has been a abusive husband and parent throught his life. Last year things went from bad to worse and he started shouting at neighbours in the middle of the night. This was when we contacted a psychatrist and he prescibed Sizodon.

Hello Sasha,

 

I'm sorry, I've never heard of a drug called Sizodon Plus, are you spelling it correctly, or do you live outside of the U.S. where other drugs are prescribed that I may not be aware of?

 

From what you've told me of the situation with your father, he may indeed need to be on some kind of medication for the rest of his life.

 

If you want, verify the name of the drug and get back to me.  Was it prescribed for the depression?  The main thing is, your father needs relief from his illness, and if the Sizodon or another drug alleviates what's going on, you have to weigh the benefits of taking the drug versus going without.

 

Respectfully,

Christina

The same case is with my father, we are giving him sizdon as per the advise of a psychiatrist and it shall continue for life.

 

once during his overseas visit, sizodon was stopped or could not be given; he changed back to his agressive ways.

 

however sizodon has no side effects, when taken in small doses as per the psychiatrist
